The Wolf is tipping a bounce back performance from the Warriors and is also expecting both sides to throw the ball around. The overs looks like the best play, with five of the last six matches between the sides topping 38 points. Warriors halfback, Shaun Johnson is a superstar, who was poor by his standards in last week’s loss to the Panthers, and The Wolf is tipping a big performance from SJ. Meanwhile, Broncos five-eighth Anthony Milford looks to have finally hit his straps and could provide plenty of attacking opportunities here.
